My listings are in Weehawken, NJ across the Lincoln Tunnel from Manhattan so we serve the NY market. I have a return guest checking out today - she’s a photographer from Texas that does “senior glamour shots” and originally I thought - oh so nice that the old birds want to dress up and take lovely pictures. But it’s actually High School seniors. So she comes to town with a small group of seniors to take their pictures in various New York settings. Interesting business model as I had no idea this was a thing. Maybe it’s more of a Southern rite of passage to have a pro photo shoot done when you’re 18.
In any case I get a text an hour ago saying that their flight is canceled and asking if the apartment is available for one more night as they can’t get another flight out until tomorrow. I reply that it’s not, as we have another family coming in tonight. Five minutes later, I get an email from the incoming French family and they are on the second leg of their journey having already visited the Grand Canyon and are now in LA. Their flight is cancelled so they won’t make it in until tomorrow! What luck and timing. So I call back the Texan, she’s already booked another place for tonight.
You can just never tell what the day will bring (today it’s bringing a hellstorm of rain).
